No! That's like saying you feel bad for the Yankees.

The win for the Black car was huge for him.

Indy RC Racer wins so much it gets old!

My first VTA. Our hobby shop is moving into a new larger building and we are installing a carpet track next week. We are planning on VTA being our headline class. Here is my first VTA car...excuse the lack of driver and the rear bumper/spoiler was not been installed yet.

Awesome.
Did you do the weathering effect on the outside of the body?

Yes, the black hood and the yellow are sprayed inside as normal, the overspray film is cut out on the hood and sprayed with flat clear then the rest of the overspray film comes off. Then the decals are added, then I airbrush a very thinned black for race track grime and age. Then I lightly flat clear the whole outside to seal the airbrushing and the decals and knock down the shine of the lexan to make the paint look old and oxidized. Then I take alcohol on a paper towel and sort of remove the flat clear from the windows and it leaves them looking more like just dirty glass. As the car gets driven, it will just get better with age.

I need to paint a car like that. I get upset when a new shiny paint job gets beat up from racing so if I start with a 'trashed' body I'll be happier!

I think I may paint a car silver on the inside and the color on the outside so when it gets dents and scratches the paint comes off like it would on a 1:1.

If you do that, I'd go with a dull grey (like battleship grey). I've seen the effect done on Lexan bodied rock crawlers and if the underside paint is silver, it looks too out of place. A non-metallic paint looks better, IMO.

Thanks for that tip! Gray makes sense.

I think I'm going to do this on the body I'm going to paint for the enduro race I'm hosting. It should look awesome at the end of the event.
